    are you spose to use an exact result, or an empirical rule approximation?

    also, are you using a ti83, or stat program, or do you have to use the tables in the book?

    tables bite .... different authors have different formats that they feel are better :/ in any case, the process is simple enough if you can read the table

    find a z score, look it up in the table, work the results\[Z=\frac{X-mean}{sd}\]

    since your mean = 48, and sd = 6 finding the z scores for the given info is simple enough

    A. Find the probability that her age will fall between 54 and 60 years z1 = (54-48)/6 ; z2 = (60-48)/6 do you know how to read your tables?

    then the rest of it is working out the values from the table to address the given situations.

    C. Find the probability that her age will be less than 35 is_____. x = 35, then find the area to the left of z D. Find the probability that her age will exceed 40 years is_____. x = 40, then find the area to the right of z
